C R W Nevinson Paths of Glory (1917) Paths of Glory is among C R W Nevinson's most famous works completed after he was appointed an official war artist in 1917. The depiction of two dead British soldiers lying face down in the mud as well as the loaded title meant it was not passed for exhibition. However Nevinson displayed it partially obscured with tape bearing the word 'Censored'. This gained the publicity he was seeking though also a reprimand from his employers. The painting uses a more naturalistic style than some of his earlier paintings. As a disciple of futurism Nevinson had seen the war as typifying the modern machine age and had previously used a more angular cubist-influenced style. But his later wartime paintings often moved away from this approach.
